Wohler Monitors MADI, More
Carl Dempsey, CEO of Wohler, is proudest
of one simple fact: Every product on the
booth is shipping.
He credits this accomplishment to
Wohler's expanded engineering resources,
which he says grew 40 percent from this
time last year.
Jeff McNall, product line manager for audio/video, announced the international debut
of what Wohler claims is the world's first
MADI audio monitor, the MADI-8, which
enables broadcasters to implement Multiple
Audio Digital Interface in their production
McNall also hit the highlights on Presto
Multiview Source Selector — in a single
rackunit, it makes 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI video
channels readily available for monitoring
and switching via 16 integrated OLED pushbuttons.
McNall also went over Wohler's Pandora
compact loudness analyzer, which is
controllable via an iPad app. Wohler's flagship
AMP2-16V modular audio/video processing
monitor brings support for SMPTE
2020 metadata monitoring and offers a menu
lockout function, among other new features.
Renaud Desportes, product line manager
for ancillary data & captioning, said
Wohler's line of HDCC ancillary data and
captioning solutions has been expanded.
Chief Marketing Officer Don Bird pointed
out that Wohler's Panorama line of video
products will now carry the Wohler brand.
